Rachika Sahay: Moving in-house

Trilegal counsel Rachika A Sahay has joined global oil and gas services company Weatherford as its sole legal counsel in India.

Sahay had been at Trilegal since graduating from NLIU Bhopal in 2005, followed by a Master's degree at the London School of Economics in 2007, and specialised in corporate and projects, infrastructure and energy at the firm.

Earlier this month she has now joined Weatherford International's in India as its legal head.

She said: “It was a very good opportunity and the idea would be to focus on one practice area, and I had been doing some oil and gas matters at Trilegal.”

Her role would involve negotiating oil and gas-related agreements and working with the internal compliance and other functions, as well as handling internal legal needs of the company.

Trilegal co-founding partner Akshay Jaitly commented: “Rachika was a great colleague while she was with us and very easy to work with.  I’m sure she will be an excellent addition to the Weatherford team.

“We in fact advised Weatherford together a few years ago so I look forward to having the opportunity of working together again in a new context.”
